About

Very Good Very Powerful (also known as “Very Good Very Strong,” “Very Good Very Mighty,” or “Very Very Strong”) is the predecessor to all Chinese “Very X Very Y” (很X很Y) internet catchphrases. In Chinese, it is written 很好很强大 (Pinyin: hěn hǎo hěn qiángdà).

Variation 1:

“Very Good Very Powerful” is used as a humorous response to a variety of topics, from video game and book recommendations to romance. It is very popular on Chinese forums, although not as popular as it once was.

Example 1:

Person 1: “Is Eclipse a good movie?”
Person 2: “Very Good and Powerful!”

Example 2:

Article Title: “The iPhone is very good very powerful!”

Variation 2

The meme also involves using the form: “很X很XX,” (where X is an adjective, and XX is a “stronger” form of X)

Example:
Internet authority, Peng Bo, using the phrase (3 times!) on February 22, 2008:

Original:
“明天中国的互联网,一定会很美很绿色、很棒很健康、很好很强大!”
Rough Translation:
“Tomorrow’s Internet will be very very green, very very healthy, very very powerful!”

Origin

Although “Very Good Very Powerful” was used before 2007, it became really popular with its use on the official Chinese World of Warcraft website in June 2007. The Chinese version of World of Warcraft does feature skeletons, and those enemies were replaced by a different creature:


After the “Very Good! Very Powerful!” caption was added, the catchphrase took off.
